Google Code - Google goes the way of Yahoo Developers Network
A nice little post hiding on the Searchenginewatch blog today - Google has launched a new subdomain: code.google.com. Under the heading "Welcome to Google Code, Google's place for Open Source software", Google now creates a developer place, like the recently announced Yahoo! Developer Network. From FAQ:
What is code.google.com?
Code.google.com is our site for external developers interested in Google-related development. It’s where we’ll publish free source code and lists of our API services.
Who are the people behind code.google.com?
A lot of people worked together to both prepare source code for release and prepare code.google.com for launch and ongoing maintenance. We really care about free and open source software (F/OSS) at Google, and this site is one aspect of that affection.
Sounds nice - bring it on !
